Fun Flute Duets
A Collection of Themed Pieces
by Chris Potter
Published by Kevin Mayhew
“I have found that themes work well for students’ recitals, making them more memorable and providing a focal point for specific occasions.
I use folk and popular music as well as classical pieces that students might enjoy. The pieces are suitable for players of varying ability and pose different challenges, sucha s rhythmic patterns or a wide range of pitches or dynamics, finger dexterity or breath control.
I always make the audience sing along with a few songs at recitals, so go to the internet and find the lyrics to your favourites. I hope you have as much fun with this book as we have had.” — Chris Potter
